Browsing Urban Decay
I really didn’t know what to think when I first swiped on URBAN DECAY COSMETICS Vice Lip Chemistry Lasting Glassy Tint ($22 @ urbandecay.com, ulta.com). I think I was most expecting a gloss and I got a gloss, but then a delightful stain. Here are the deets…
What It Is: Get comfy—Vice Lip Chemistry is our vegan, high-gloss lip tint that reacts to your pH and creates a custom shade unique to your tone. Its lightweight, balm-like texture gives your lips a hit of hydration, so they feel moisturized. The lasting glassy tint adjusts to you; the color fully develops and reveals itself after just a few minutes and lasts up to 5 hours. Vice Lip Chemistry’s vegan formula goes on smooth and glossy (never sticky!) and does not transfer. Part of the Stay Naked collection, this Vice Lip Chemistry lineup is designed to flatter all skin tones. From laid-back neutrals with Low Key (pink-nude) and Heavy (pale nude) to bright hues like Streak (coral-pink) and 21 (cool red), there’s a shade to match every mood.
And the Naked continues … URBAN DECAY just came out with two products under the Stay Naked moniker – ‘Stay Naked’ Weightless Liquid Foundation ($39/1oz @ urbandecay.com, sephora.com) and ‘Stay Naked’ Correcting Concealer ($29 @ urbandecay.com, sephora.com, ulta.com).
Let’s take a closer look at each one –
‘Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation – What It Is - Find your naked truth with Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation, our vegan, buildable medium coverage liquid foundation with a real-skin matte finish that lasts up to 24 hours. We designed this lineup of 50 shades with 9 shade intensities, 3 mastertones, and 7 undertones to dial in your precise color match. Our waterproof, longwear foundation feels like wearing nothing, thanks to a breathable, flexible formula that moves with you (all day and all night, up to 24 hours!). It not only feels better, it even looks better with its stay-true color, which minimizes the appearance of pores—so you always look like you.
By now you’ve probably seen all the photos of the URBAN DECAY UD / Game of Thrones Palette ($65 @ urbandecay.com, ulta.com) and a lot of you picked it up as it’s sold out on their website! What a stellar collab.
The palette is comprised of the five house names of GOT – House Targaryen, House Lannister, House Stark, The North. I had to ask a GOT friend of mine how to refer to these five names as I don’t watch the show!.
Check out these 20 shades of mattes, metallic and frosty shimmers inside the palette. It has 16 shades and four transformer shadows.

Three limited-edition Vice Lipsticks, two 24/7 Glide-One Eye Pencils, and a cherry-scented All Nighter Setting Spray top it all off.
Can you believe we still have over a month of summer temps? My biggest problem this time of year when it comes to makeup is the dreaded makeup meltdown. It’s not fun and doesn’t look good. Here are few I like that will help you avoid it this season.
Setting Mist – SUPERGOOP Supergoop! X MILLY Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 ($28/3.4oz @ sephora.com) – keep it all in place with a good makeup setting spray. And this one has SPF 50 built in so you refreshing all day will give you a shot of protection from the sun.
Brow Gel – PHYSICIANS FORMULA Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel ($10.95 @ walgreens.com) – I inherited my father’s brows so my brow hairs get long so keeping them in place is a must. This duo adds a dash of color and the other end combs it all in place.
Blush – I usually go with a cream blush but this CARGO Swimmables Water Resistant Blush ($26 @ ulta.com, dermstore.com) is showing its strength. This one is sweatproof and waterproof so I’m restoring my faith in pressed powder during the summer again.
Anti-Lip bleeding Lippie – MAC Liptensity Lip Pencil ($21 @ maccosmetics.com, nordstrom.com) – I’ve been wearing these as full lip colors and the added benefit? No bleeding! The Marsala shade is a favorite.
The collection is comprised of:
- Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette ($49)
- Born To Run Vice Lipstick ($18) in 66 comfort matte (nude mauve), Marfa comfort matte (dark berry w/pink micro-shimmer), Ready? matte (bright rose sparkle).

- Travel-size All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray ($15/1oz)
What it is: Inspired by the landscape of warm SoCal beaches, the limited-edition Beached Collection warrants a permanent vacation. From ultra-pigmented eyeshadow palette to warm bronzers, creamy eyeliners and lipsticks, your makeup bag will feel like a little slice of beachy paradise. The long-lasting formulas won’t budge, even when you’re spending the season’s hottest days under the sun.

You have an event coming up and you want to find the perfect dress, the highest heels, a good blowout, and oh, what should you do with your makeup for it? While you decide, here are a few products that can add a nice touch to your look that you might not have thought about.
No matter what trait you are looking to show off, I have some suggestions that have totally worked for me below.
Make legs look silky smooth – temps will be warming up soon so skirts will be getting shorter again. Give legs and extra extra with one of these. It makes you look like you are wearing stockings when you’re not. VOTRE VU Silk Stockings in Classic Bronze ($38/3.38oz @ votrevu.com) or NARS Monoi Body Glow I ($59/2.5oz @ narscosmetics.com, sephora.com).
